Dewey Lake Manor is family-owned business since 1990!
At our Brooklyn, Michigan bed and breakfast, feel free to use some or all of the many provided amenities, including a paddleboat, canoe, grills, picnic tables, bonfires, horseshoes and croquet. There are eighteen acres to wander and a picnic area by the lake shore. Guests can return to the days of old and relax in an aura of yesteryear - a time of lamplight and lace, love songs and flowers, picnics and sunsets.
Our Irish Hills bed and breakfast guest rooms feature comfortable country Victorian decor. A large deck and glass enclosed porch, with a view of the lake, provide a pleasant place to enjoy breakfast or just relax. Other common rooms include a parlor with piano and a sitting room with a bay window overlooking the lake.
Enjoy a breakfast of fresh fruit, freshly ground coffees and homemade specialties from the enclosed porch with a view of Dewey Lake.
